The only dllllculty Jn the way of this
proposed compromise. It was said yes'
tcrclay by competent authority, Is Dr.
Grant, whose nttltudo on the matter of
tho church forums Is characterized as
"stubborn" by persons who have talked
with him recently on that subject.
Grant Aitnlnst Compromise.
Dr. Grant M said to have assumed a
"no compromise, no ' concessions" attl-
ude during his. private talk with th
vestrymen In the ivctory on Thursday
2 afternoon, but his friends hope they
,wlll find him opon to persuasion when
they meet again at the roctory thli
morning and that In; will ngreo to the
plan that they haw drafted. If lu
does not, there Is a question as to
whether the patience of his friends on
the vestry will endure any longer.
While tho vestrymen would not dli
cuss the exact details of tho proposed
compromise yesterday, it was Intimated
Uhnt they hadaske d the Bishop's np
llbroval to a plan whereby a speaker of
Unquestioned loyalty should bo per-

Instead of discussing tho subject of thli
speaker's addrceti In the church room
s they do now, would bo given ah op
portunity of cither adjourning to the
parish house immediately upon the con
clusion of the talk or assembling there
it some other tlvne during the week for
the purpo of voicing their views. .
Such arrangement would be In com
pliance with the canons of the church,
which permit laymen to address tho
congregation provided they have tho
permission of the Bishop.
To hold the entire Sunday night ses
sion tn the parish house. It was pointed
out, would be Impossible, because the
meeting room there Is too small for the
crowds. Tho forums In the Church
o the Ascension originated in the
parish house sovcral years ago, but Dr.
Grant removed them to the church be
cause they outgrew their quarters.

Property Custodian back In the war days
ho seized the Ilotnny Wojuted Mills,
turned them over to a uoam of direc
tors and later, when a Government ad
visory board recommended the ealo of
the property, acted on that advice. He
denied .the allegations of Max W, Htoehr
that he had dominated tho directorate,
Mr, Stoehr, who Is financially Interested

Did Without It Rather Than
Tip Waiters.
The tips to waiters who brought soup
to her room In the Waldorf-Astoria were
so numerous that Mrs. Rosa 13. Spang,
who left an estate of more than $2,000,
O00, decided that she could not Include
this kind of food in her diet.
Dr. Joseph York, who attended Sirs.
Spang at one time, testified yesterday
before Surrogate Cohalan and a Jury,
where Mrs. Mabel Crome-Ancker, her
daughter, Is contesting her mother's will,
that Mrs. Spang told him the tips cost
tier more than the soup was worth.
Dr. York and Dr. Kdward M. Foote.
another attending pnyelclan, testified
they believed Mrs. Snane was Irra
tional. She told funny stories and re
cited verses which made the doctors
blush. They regarded her treatment of
her husband, Charles H. Spang, mil

Tho proposed compromise plan. It Is I Although he was blind and 111 with
thought, would tend to put a decided
crimp In the radicalism In the forum.
Certain of the vestrymen admit prl-
i vatelyt. that they have long been of
the opinion that their rector was mis
taken In. his public forum Idea, but
they do not' want to put themselves In
a position of suppressing or dictating
to the pulpit.
Some of them feel that the Beds have
been making n practice of "packing"
the forum meetings tn the church room
for the express purpose of creating a
din whenever any speaker might make
a remark that they could construe as
favorable to their cause and for abus
ing the privileges of speech that Dr.
Grant has been extending to them.
Although they are supporting Dr.
Grant tho vestrymen generally appear
.to be of the ODlnlon that the critics of
' the forum aro qulkc Justified In their
attitude. "This controversy never would
have arisen," ono of them said to a rep
resentative of Tub Sum,- "If the forum
had not been given over almost ex
clusively to radicalism, and If. Dr. Grant
had not made the mistake of com
paring the Buford to tho Mayflower."

Mrs. Cora M. Splker of Baltimore, Is
appealing from the decision .of the Board
of Special Inquiry which refused admis

Knowles and her three-months-old baby.
Miss Knowles, according to alfldavlts
flled, was the affinity of Perley R. Splker.
Mrs. Spiker's husband, when he was at
Jn American n.vlnttnn wimn In 'PTncrHnil
v Mrs. Splker states she knows all the cir
cumstances and declares that It would
not disturb her happiness if Miss
Knowles came to live In their home. To
Mil to the situation, an affidavit was
aYso (lied by Guy S. Splker, her hus
i band's brother, stating that hn would
liparry Miss Knowles, although he has
! never seen her. He lives with the Splk

Splker believes the marrlago would set-

Action May Indicate Acquit
tal by Court-Martial.
Capt. Karl W. Detzer, who has been
a prisoner on Governors Island since
November 8 last, on trial for mistreating
military prisoners, was released from ar
rest yesterday.
The order was Issued by Trial Judge
Advocate Major William F. Kelly, Indi
cating that tho court-martial board has
acquitted the army officer of the cruelty
charges. Tho order, however, as served
on Col. J. C. F. Tlllson, commandant of
Fort Jay, simply stated that the court
martial had neither Imposed confinement
or dismissal on Capt. Detzer, pnd that
therefore under the regulations govern
ing courts-martial ho must be released.
It Is possible, however, that Instead of
acquittal the court may have Imposed a
fine, a reprimand, or suspension In rank.
It will be several weeks before the
formal announcement of the decision of
the court-martial will be made known.

to the rcnomlnntlon of Senator Jnmcs
W, WadBworth, Jr. He threatened trou

The threat( was contained In these

For this reason the Anti-Saloon League
of New York Is determined to retire Mr.

Jeopardize the Republican party for the
personal satisfaction of a bull headed
reactionary wet who has' himself Jeop
ardized the Republican party to graltfy
his own prejudices?' "
Mr. Anderson declared that tho at
tempt of the liquor Interests to capture
Congress nnd nullify the 1-eileral pro

Work Here Now Is Nearly
95 Per Cent. Completed.
Tho business of taking the census of
'.ne Greater City will be nearly 93 per
cent, completed to-day, accord'ng to
William M. Steuart. Assistant Director
of the Census, Washington, supervising
the enumeration In tho district which
Includes New York city and suburbs.
"The remaining 5 or 10 per cent, w'll b
difficult to work up," ho added, "but we
shall complete it with all the kpeed and
accuracy possible." Neither Mr. Steuart
nor Samuel J. Foley, who U In charge of
the work In the borough of Manhattan,
would commit themselves to an estimate
of borough or city totals yesterday. Mr.
Foley thought final figures might show
an Increase of 5 to 10 per cent, over the
figures of 1910, and conceded that Brook
lyn would probably show a greater gain
than Manhattan.
A definite announcement of the popu

about two weeks, and by that time the

Wants Explanation of Pro
posed N. Y. Consolidation.
The Central Federated Union of New
York city appointed a five man commit-'
teo last night to ascertain why the exec
utive council of the American Federa
tion of Labor wishes to abolish It ,
and bring nil of tho local unions tn !
Greater New York under one executive
committee. This action was suggested
by Samuel Gnmpers, who, In a letter to
tho C. F. V.. declurcd that the existence
of four labor councils In the greater city
was unnecessary nnd Inefficient nnd that,
therefore, tho C. F. V., the Rich, 'ond
Central Trades and Labor Council, the
Bronx Labor Council and the Central
Labor Union of Brooklyn should sur
render their Individual charters and
consolidate under one charter that the
800 labor unions In the city might have
only ono mother body.
But there was much dissension among
the delegates at last night's meeting.
Led by A. A. Lefkowltz of tho Teachers
I'nlon, Iho majority of the delegates
chofe to send the committee to meet Mr.
Gompers nnd other members of the exec
utive council of the A. F. of L at the
Continental Hotel on .Monday nt nooir,
but to hind tho C. F. U. to no ncllon or
agreement. The committee's sole power
consists In compiling a report and sub
mitting It nt the next meeting of the
C. F, l next Friday night.
At the meeting nn Monday tho real
reason for the conference nnd the amal
gamation of the tever.il central bodies,
nnd the failure of the (.'. V, I', to take
summary notion upon the printing trades
secessionists last summer will be re
viewed. The C. F. V. committee consists of K,

Pastor Stokes.
A check for $315, signed with tho
name of Rose Pastor Stokes and with

ture which, It Is charged, was crlmln
allr anarchistic.
Gltlow, a one time Assemblyman, Is
on trial In the Criminal Branch of the
Supreme Court. The Indictment against
him rests on evidence that he, with cer

ticle which the State Insists was crimi
nal. It will be read to the Jury to-day.
The check with the name of Mrs.
Stokes signed to It was put In evidence
yesterday Just after Nathan Elkln,. a
Grand street printer, had testified that ,
the copies of the Revolutionary Age con- I
tnlnlng the Communist manifesto were
printed In the establishment conducted
by him and payment made by tho check.
The check came back as Insufficient
within a few days, and Gltlow, Elkln
testified, paid him for the printing In
cash. The check was not signed In
dividually but ns secretary of a So
